The Prescott Foundation supports programs, projects and organizations that enrich life for residents of the Prescott community. We provide grants for community development, education, recreation, arts and culture, environmental projects, youth programs and community services.
In setting priorities for making grants, we consider the needs of the Prescott area, the programs of other funding agencies, and our resources.
The Prescott Foundation welcomes grant requests from organized groups within the greater Prescott area that meet one of the following criteria:
Grants are generally not awarded for:
Grant requests will be evaluated based on project purpose, innovation, reach within the community, budget, the capacity to continue the project, the ability of the requesting group to successfully implement and manage the project, and the availability of other funding.
Because we expect that requests for funds will always exceed our resources, we will give higher priority to projects that significantly contribute to the benefit of our community and where a moderate amount of money can achieve a significant result.
Grant recipients are selected by the Prescott Foundation Board of Directors and approved by the St. Croix Valley Foundation Board of Directors.
We require that all grant recipients provide a brief summary of the program’s results. We will indicate a timeframe for the summary when we notify recipients of a grant award.
When completing the grant application, please provide the appropriate amount of detail so that Foundation Board members can understand and evaluate your request.

The Prescott Foundation has been improving the quality of life and advancing philanthropy in the Prescott area since 1989. Our mission is to build a better community through charitable giving. We connect donors to the charitable causes that the community care about and we make grants and provide leadership to address community issues.
Each year, thousands of dollars flow from the Prescott Foundation to support the good work of our schools, local organizations, and charitable groups. The consistent stream of local philanthropy begins in the hearts of our donors, people who have prospered here and who want to give something back to the community. Whether they make a one-time donation, plan a bequest from a large estate, or make a small memorial donation to honor a loved one, people find a pathway for their good intentions through the Prescott Foundation.
A volunteer Board of Directors governs the Prescott Foundation. The members have combined expertise in charitable giving, law, financial management, government, general business and community service. The Board defines the vision, mission, and strategies of the Foundation. In 2013 we became an affiliate of the St. Croix Valley Foundation, which provides us with expert investment management and additional resources for administration.
Each year, the Prescott Foundation provides grants to organization and groups that respond to specific community challenges and improve the vitality of our community. We are especially interested in supporting programs that create a positive and lasting impact.
